Seibertron member El Duque has informed us that Chinese toy merchant - iGear has listed an auction for an unknown BotCon 2010 figure.

The figure is a blue dinosaur, a repaint from a Deluxe class Cybertron Beast Wars Megatron figure. No identity has been given to this figure, but it can be assumed that this figure is paying homage to G2 Grimlock.

I kind of like it. I had the Blue Grimlock and for whatever reason I liked having a blue dinosaur. Wish i could get this guy but I'm not paying a fortune for him.

I must say the colors surprise me, especially the blue.


Yeah, not what I expected. But I'll take it. It matches up with the set though. Just not the original namesake of the character.

*nevermind* rather make em guess.

Speakin of Cryoteck, I'd sure love it if the club gave us him using that Energon Shockblast mold. That would definitely go well as a club toy. Works better then Hasbro's Sixshot IMO.

Thanks for the news cred, but I just lifted it from TFW05. S250 from their boards deserved the real credit for the find. :D

Agreed. With a little Chro done out of Energon Divebomb.

Close enough, though the colors are reversed.

Again, another mold that, IMO, needs to be used. I love my regular Divebomb and the ShadowHawk one too. Great alt modes and incredibly articulated bot mode. I need moar meow!!

It's gotta be G2 Grimlock. It's the only answer that makes sense.

Here's what comes up when you search for "blue beasts" at TFU.com:

http://www.tfu.info/ID/bluebeasts.htm

The only other figures that even come close to resembling this blue T-Rex mold are:
Deathsaurus (a dragon),
Landsaur (from Magmatron),
the McDonald's Dinobot from '88,
Cryotek (a dragon), and
Hasbro Go-Bots Beast Bot

Considering the THEME of BotBon '10 is G2, isn't G2 Grimlock (a blue T-Rex) the obvious choice?

if it's G2 Grimlock, I'm psyched. If it's not, I'll pretend it is.

Or maybe it's a lost child? I'm curious why there are only two Sparkabots and Firecons in G2. I won't accept anything technorganic as Grimlock.

It's a sparkbot/con.

:KREMZEEK:

It's not Grimlock.

Irrelevant to this topic, but in IDW's continuity Grimlock gains his T-rex alt mode by technoorganic means. He didn't become a purely robotic dino until Shockwave blasted off all his organic flesh.
